Owners Celebrate Grand Opening with Free Subs
January 20, 2014 • Pleasanton, CA
Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, opened in Pleasanton on January 15. Friends and business partners, David, Cody, and Bennett Ball; and Michael and Beverly Mills, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 15 to Sunday, January 19 to support the Pleasanton Partnerships in Education Foundation.
The new restaurant, located at 6654 Koll Center Parkway, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Pleasanton Partnerships in Education Foundation.
“This is our third Jersey Mike’s location and I have come to find just how rewarding it is to open our doors and support the community,” said Bennett Ball. “The Pleasanton Partnerships in Education Foundation is regarded as such an integral aspect to the local education system and we couldn’t think of a better grand opening partnership. We feel so lucky to be welcomed with open arms here in Pleasanton and we are grateful for this opportunity to bring the Jersey Mike’s brand and culture to this community.”
She added, “We hire so many local high school students to be on our team and we find that supporting the education system is just another way to give back to our valued crew members. Opening a Jersey Mike’s location is a lot like opening the doors to our own home and we look forward to creating new and lasting relationships here.”
The Ball and Mills families are exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owners who shares the company’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who are dedicated to giving back to the local community. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised nearly $7.5 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 600,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,000 restaurants open and under development nationwide. In just three years, the company has nearly doubled in size.
The growth is fueled by passionate Jersey Mike’s fans who crave their subs made Mike’s Way® with onions, lettuce, tomatoes and a signature olive oil blend, vinegar and spices. The company uses only private labeled meats and cheeses, sliced fresh for each sub sandwich and piled high on in-store baked bread. Everything is quickly made to order for each customer, just the way the first subs were made at the original Jersey Mike’s nearly 60 years ago. The Jersey Mike’s experience always includes its trademark neighborly banter served up by a high-energy Jersey Mike’s team.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (925) 425-0865.
